I just tapped your Pliny the Elder clone this weekend and it is delicious! It's surprisingly smooth for 368 theoretical IBUs and the punch-you-in-your-face hop flavor and aroma are awesome. Based on the ~8% ABV I thought it might take a while to get through this keg, but after enjoying 4 or 5 pints with my brother-in-law this weekend I think it'll go much quicker than I originally expected!

finished my last 16 oz bottle yesterday. Still "fresh" and full of flavor. Good head retention until the end. Will brew again, if I get the chance. Most AHS recipes are good enough to brew again, but there is only so much I can do. Cheers.

I brewed and bottled this about 3 months ago for a friend's birthday. It is the best beer I have ever brewed. Perfect head, great aroma, amazing flavor. My share of the batch is about gone so I purchased another kit to keg! Can't wait! If you enjoy a hoppy but not over powering beer this is for you!

Brewed as a mini-mash. Primary 9 days and 41 days in secondary with the dry hopping. After 4 weeks in the bottle, this beer is really coming into its own. Great nose and a big but mellow hoppy flavor. Definitely a keeper. I'll rebrew this again and again.

I brewed the extract version. I kegged it on Friday night. We had friends over on Sunday and everyone loved it. It isnt fully carbonated yet, but i was letting people have small tastes. I can't wait for it to be fully carbed and ready to go. The extract kit is amazingly close to the real deal. Highly recommend this beer!!

Brewed the AG version. After 2.5 weeks bottle conditioning, it is well carbinated and very aromatic. I could smell and taste orange and grapefruit in the easy to drink brew. Kept its head all the way through. Can't wait to see how this will taste after the full 6 weeks recommended conditioning, if it lasts that long.

I brewed the extract version and after 2 weeks in the bottle it tastes excellent. It tastes very similar to the real deal and in my opinion has an even nicer aroma. If you are like me and don't have access to Pliny the Elder I'd highly recommend picking up this kit.

I brewed this per request to be served at a wedding reception. I brewed the AG version. I have never seen so many hops in my life. It turned out amazingly smooth for the amount of hops that were used. It was a hit at the wedding reception (keg floated). Expensive recipe, but I may just do it again in the future since it turned out so great and was so well received.

I'm a huge fan of anything Russian River brews, and I made it out to the brewery last fall. Pliny the Elder is probably my favorite beer of all time. I brewed the extract version of this kit - didn't change a thing or add any ingredients. Sat in primary for 2 weeks, then secondary for about 2 weeks, then kegged it. A few days later it was ready to go. I was able to find the REAL Pliny the Elder on tap at a bar, so I was able to compare it to the original pretty accurately, and it's very close. The flavors and aroma were spot on. The only difference that I could tell right away was that my kit version came out very cloudy - didn't clear up at all. It really is an incredible kit and makes an incredible hop bomb brew. I had a major problem kegging this beer due to the fact that the kit had so many hops in it. My corney keg fittings kept getting clogged. Make sure you strain your wort, or use hop bags with this kit...hopefully you won't have the trouble that I did, but it was worth every drop. The ABV was spot-on at about 7.5%. I will definitely brew this again and again. Once you drink a pint of this beer you will be ruined. No other double IPA comes close.
